Specialties

Dr. Kevin A Linkus has the following 2 specialties

  • Thoracic Surgery (Cardiothoracic Vascular Surgery)
  • Vascular Surgery

    Vascular surgeons treat and manage disorders in your veins, arteries and your lymphatic system to ensure blood circulation in your heart and in brain is the best it can be. They're well-versed on how your vascular system works with the rest of your body and they can treat conditions that may cause blockages or buildup.
    They can perform many of the same diagnostic testing as interventional radiologists can, such as angiography and MRIs. In addition to diagnosis, they provide critical care and treatment for aneurysms, artery blockages and trauma injuries that involve your veins. They can also help patients manage diabetes, blood pressure and cholesterol as well as treat artery disease. Treatment for more serious cases might include bypass surgery or surgery to remove plaque.

Neta M.

I had double bypass surgery in 2002. Ten years later, I still feel great. I most certainly would pick Dr Linkus to perform any future heart related surgeries.

Lucky to Have Dr. Linkus for my Father

Dr. Linkus did an excellent job on my father's triple bypass surgery. The surgery was over fairly quickly, and there seems to be minimal complications. He was caring and straightforward, and his personality coincided perfectly with mine and my fathers. I would buy Dr. Linkus a beer. He is a good guy.
